    Volunteering For Life Is Slave Labor or Close To Slave Labor

    Got to admit I don't agree with hand-outs or hand-ups but really what annoys me is some people think doing a fair days work for less than the monies to cover rent/food and the basics is OK as a lifetime career for people. I don't think it is time yet but the basic idea that reducing food...

    You humans are beginning to annoy me

    Time for a mass Extermination I feel. Humans suck the life out of their own species. No other life on this planet does such a thing. We are horrible, a virus that has infected this planet. Too much genuine suffering yet we stand by and watch it happen. Me me me me me. How many times do we...

    BT nightmare rumbles on

    I just had a voice message from BT about the outstanding amount I owe them and that they will not be sending out another bill. So I sent them an email stating I'd be OK paying the outstanding amount on the condition they disconnect my landline + close my account. Fair enough wouldn't you...

    I overdosed.

    This has been quite awhile ago, but i still to this day have never felt the same. I think I may have caused brain damage, to what extent i do not know. I don't have money to find out, so I was seeing if there's any nice people that have had insight into this situation.

    Depressed on and off for months now

    It's a really long one! Sorry for my tone in some of those because I'm also angry about a lot of those issues. I don't know where to start because it's a lot. 1. It's Thanksgiving and I'm hating it. My girlfriend died 10 years ago on Thanksgiving Day. I'm lesbian so I never told my family...

    Is she Really On Drugs?

    My sister diagnosed with with BPD and she lies, emotionally bullies and begs my mum for money, and obviously my mum gives in. Usually she'll say she needs the money for food or to get a bus back to where ever she's staying. We've suspected she has been using the money for drugs or alcohol but...

    Does Tough Love Work?

    My sister apparently has BPD and a drug problem. She is now homeless after being kicked out of a charity homeless shelter, so is not living with a 'friend'. But she has no income so always begs, lies or emotionally bullies my mum for money. How do we get her to change and take responsibility...

    What's the solution?

    Apparently my sister has bpd, she's in her mid 30s now and has always caused problems. A couple of years ago she lost her flat because the landlord was selling it, so she ended up sleeping on 'friend's' sofas. She is unemployed and has been for many years, so she emotionally bullies my mum...

    Poverty in the Afterlife by Edward C Randall

    I do wonder how one must behave to be spiritually wealthy. It can be so confusing these days where there is a universal poverty. A simple life, being kind, being thoughtful and not being nasty or a bully is probably good enough. Anyway here is the article: White Crow Books | Features

    I cannot get away from the abusive guy and I just keep suffering

    I was not allowed to sleep on bed. If I tried, he cursed me using the most horrible language, shouting at me with extreme anger and hatred in his eyes. Throwing things that were on bed to me. I had been forced to sleep on the floor for more than three years before I got enough money to pay him...

    Cut most people off

    Haven’t been on here in while. Last month, I finally got sick of family and friends. Cut most off. Think it makes things easier for me when the time comes. Still no job. Almost at end of money. No more benefits. So, I ping pong between so what and maybe it’ll work out every 30 min. Meh.
